Modeling the 3D Conformation of Genomes

1st Edition

Guido Tiana, Luca Giorgetti
January 23, 2019

This book provides a timely summary of physical modeling approaches applied to biological datasets that describe conformational properties of chromosomes in the cell nucleus. Chapters explain how to convert raw experimental data into 3D conformations, and how to use models to better understand...

Universe Dynamics: The Least Action Principle and Lagrange’s Equations

1st Edition

Jacques Vanier, Cipriana Tomescu (Mandache)
January 22, 2019

CHOICE Recommended Title, June 2019 Brought together in one focused and exclusive treatment, this book provides an elementary introduction to the important role and use of the least action principle and the resulting Lagrange’s equations in the analysis of the laws that govern the universe. It is...

Dynamical Systems: Theories and Applications

1st Edition

Zeraoulia Elhadj
January 22, 2019

Chaos is the idea that a system will produce very different long-term behaviors when the initial conditions are perturbed only slightly. Chaos is used for novel, time- or energy-critical interdisciplinary applications. Examples include high-performance circuits and devices, liquid mixing, chemical...

Nuclear Chemistry: Detection and Analysis of Radiation

1st Edition

Maheshwar Sharon, Madhuri Sharon
January 21, 2019

Concentrating on techniques for the detection and measurement of radioactivity, this book offers a guide to selecting the type of counter, type of source sample, duration for which the counting must be made, and the radiation emitted by the isotope for its efficient detection. It introduces a novel...

Introduction to Mechanics

1st Edition

Mahendra K. Verma
January 21, 2019

A modern introduction to Newtonian dynamics and the basics of special relativity, this book discusses standard topics such as Newton’s laws of motion, energy, linear and angular momentum, rigid body dynamics, and oscillations, then goes on to introduce modern topics such as symmetries, phase space,...
